A former member of the board of trustees (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buba Galadima has said Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is the best candidate to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Galadima claimed that Kwankwaso, a former Kano State Governor, will run unopposed on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
He said: “There are only two political parties in Nigeria today: NNPP and the rest. It is the winning party.
“It is 22 years old but reinvented two months ago. We’ve seen [shivers] across the spines of all those that you fear because they know that our candidate will be the next president of Nigeria, God willing.”
Asked the candidate, Buba Galadima said: “We have our forms, we have closed the sale of forms. Only one person bought the form to become president, so he is unopposed.
“[He is] the only candidate in Nigeria who is sure that is going to be on the ballot come March 2023.
“Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is the only politician in Nigeria that has got the CV that nobody has among all the flock that are running across the country.
“He was deputy speaker of the house of representatives, he was a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he was defence minister, he was ambassador plenipotentiary. He was governor of Kano for eight years.
“No Nigerian today has got that qualification and he has got a pedigree of performance.”
